Additional preceptor application

In addition to the primary preceptor, facilities may apply to have additional preceptors approved. The requirements for approval as an additional preceptor are the same as those for primary preceptors. A preceptor must be a doctor of veterinary medicine (licensed DVM or VMD) or a credentialed veterinary technician (RVT, LVT, CVT or a graduate of an AVMA approved veterinary technology program). Furthermore, all veterinary technician applicants will be required to submit a copy of their current state licensure or proof of graduation from an approved veterinary technology program.

There is no limit to the number of applicants that can be approved. It is important to note that facility approval does not extend automatic approval to all DVMs and veterinary technicians at that facility.  Only those DVMs and veterinary technicians who have made application and been formally approved by the program are allowed to sign off on student course task checklists (CTCs), and only after they have personally observed the student performing the required tasks.
